Courthouse News Service reports that Judge Corley has awarded plaintiff Hesterberg $50,000 in damages in his lawsuit against a GGNRA park ranger who tased him after he refused to cooperate when she stopped him for walking his dogs off-leash on a Montara park trail. Hesterberg had sued for $500,000. Judge Corley ruled in Hesterberg's favor that the use of force was excessive, but noted that he played a part in escalating the incident.
